Ashlyn Macnamara gave us her thoughts on the cover of WHAT A LADY DEMANDS, the second in the Eton Boys Trilogy. WHAT A LADY CRAVES, the first title in the trilogy is on-sale tomorrow! Find out more here. “We all bear our scars. Some are more visible than others.” Cecelia Sanford, the titular demanding lady of my November release What a Lady Demands, says these words to Viscount Lindenhurst in the course of the narrative.

And therein lies the fun with Miss Woodhouse blithely trying to set her acquaintances up and Mr. Knightley telling her to mind her own business until, through jealousy, realization strikes. I also have a personal stake in this topic, since I was friends with my husband before I married him. I think there’s something special about
